Sex change boxing promoter Kellie Maloney has entered the Big Brother house.

The 61-year-old, who was formerly known as Frank, is the bookies' favourite to win this year's show and is reportedly being paid the most money- £400,000- to appear.

Celebrities who entered the house before her included Strictly Come Dancing star James Jordan, Kelly Brook's fiance David McIntosh and former Emmerdale actress Claire King.

As she went in she said: "It's the most nerve-wracking thing I've ever done."

But within minutes she was asking Strictly star Jordan to give her dancing lessons while she was in the house.

Boxer Audley Harrison, who knows Maloney through his career, praised her as he entered the house saying: "Hats off to you," to revealing her gender reassignment.

Jokingly, he asked her after all this time why she could only come up with the name Kellie. Maloney replied: "I'm dyslexic and it was easy to spell."

Benefit Street star White Dee is also already in the house and is getting a makeover so she can pretend to the American housemates she is the "Duchess of Solihull."

Former Made in Chelsea star Ollie Locke finished third and said: "I literally have had the most bizarre experience of my entire life."When asked what the best thing about his time in the house was, he said "my beautiful Sam", in reference to fellow housemate Sam Faiers.

When his name was called, the 82-year-old said to remaining housemates: "I told you. I don't know why, but I expected it."

The entertainer left the house with the remaining housemates chanting his name and was greeted by a cheering crowd as he performed a magic trick before before being interviewed.

The veteran entertainer said he would remain good friends with Luisa Zissman, despite earlier arguing with the entrepreneur, and Made In Chelsea star Ollie Locke.

He added that he wanted either Sam Faiers or Locke to win the show.

The US star, who was warned by show bosses earlier this week after claiming being gay "ain't normal", was left in the bottom two with The Apprentice runner-up Luisa Zissman after receiving the fewest votes from the public.

The 51-year-old boxer, who famously lost part of his ear after he was bitten by Mike Tyson during a title bout in 1997, was greeted by cheers as he left the house but admitted afterwards he thought he would be more popular with viewers.

He told presenter Emma Willis: "I thought I'd be loved here, I thought I'd get more votes, but I didn't."
